    I would also like to see a link! Not that I do not believe you, I am just interested in seeing the average scores for native americans.

    mini is right, Dartmouth is a bit colder and has more snow but not enough difference by itself to reject it in favor of Amherst. Your chances could be even better at Dartmouth because of an historic commitment to educating Native Americans. If New England weather is an issue for you, consider Haverford and Swarthmore.

    The weather is not too much of an issue to me.. My parents mainly wanted me to take it into consideration (which I will). I kinda like the snow actually...but I will probably get there and won't know what hit me.

    If you are so highly ranked in national tennis aren't you being scouted by all manner of schools with great programs such as Duke, UCLA etc? Have u made your interest in Amherst known to the tennis coach? With your ethnicity and fairly strong grades etc plus your tennis the coach at any school in the US can get you a tip with any admin office. You need to narrow down your choices, contact every school you would love to attend especially the tennis coaches and wait for the braying pack to recruit you. When my D applied there was a wonderful woman head tennis coach at Amherst.

    Danalynne, I am not ranked THAT high nationally. If you misread the "top 10" I wrote, I meant for it to apply to the academy I train at, not the ranking I have. I am simply ranked nationally which is a big feat however I am not in that top tier. I am not even sure if I want to pursue tennis in college... It may seem like a no-brainer for some since I have a national ranking and I probably could play college tennis if I pursued it but I really doubt I want to.

    Maybe the PS wasn't for me but someone who earlier posted? haha
